The maximum theoretical amount of memory available to an application
running on a 32-bit Windows system is 2 GB.  In practice, Windows
typically will provide up to 1.3 to 1.7 GB, depending on the system
configuration.

If Hugh needs to allocate 10-16 GB to Stata, he will need to look
into getting one of the three 64-bit Unix platforms currently
supported by Stata: Sun Solaris, Compaq Tru64 (formerly Digital Unix
on the DEC Alpha platform), or SGI IRIX.

Hugh--I would be happy for you to contact me off-list if you would like
to discuss further hardware/software platforms that might work best for
your particular project requirements.
